We had a great holiday staying at the Villa Mia. Housekeeping, excellent, information, directions, booking procedure etc perfect. The Villa is well equipped with everything we needed and more. Situated on the edge of the village in walking distance to the Taverna, bakery and shop, ideal. Views from the elevated position lovely. Great location. Impressed with the attention to detail, we arrived in Crete very late in heavy rain, the directions were spot on and reassuring. Wendy and Eddie do it very well, everything's covered. Weather wasn't brilliant for 3 days and pool temperature dropped to 19, but then the sun came out and we managed to have a few brisk dips which we thoroughly enjoyed. Many thanks.

“Beautiful family friendly villa”

We have spent four very enjoyable family holidays at Villa Mia. The Villa is to the highest specification, equipped way beyond local standards and in the most beautiful location with views to dream of. It is a short walk from the village which has a bakery, small grocery shop and at least one excellent restaurant (our favorite is just behind the monument in the square). The nearest beach is a simple 10 minute drive to Almirida, it is clean, safe and sandy with a variety of cafes and restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
